An intoxicating evening was spent at Kamala Mills, Mumbai at the #FBAIDrinks bar crawl.
This Bar Crawl was with a difference…3 locations, 3 Alcoholic Beverages and 1 Detox Drink. Our experiential offered different settings and formats at each location. A fun hanging out at the bar at our first location, a casual sit-down at our second, and hanging out at the tables at our third location. Read on to know more.
The weather was just fabulous with an incessant downpour, but all of this made it to the #FBAIDrinks crawl!
Our 1st stop was Verbena – BrewPub and Sky Garden where we were served cocktails using Aperol. Mixologist Ramesh expertly concocted the classic Aperol Spritz, Twisted Whiskey Sour and Aperol Coconut Shot with Jalapeno. All of them were fabulous and refreshing cocktails, a great start to the crawl.
While we sipped this elixir, Sameer Malkani from the FBAI welcomed all; Sweta Mohanty from Aspri Spirits gave us a lowdown on Aspri and Aperol while Mitali Tandon of Morning Fresh spoke on India’s leading after-drinking detox beverage. We also tried a vegetarian and non-vegetarian tandoori platter and nachos at the location
Amidst the pouring rain, we walked with our umbrellas (barely) sheltering us to our 2nd stop for the night – Theory.
We’ve always loved the vibes at Theory and the theme here was cocktails using SKYY Vodka. We had The Zesty Colada (a signature drink at Theory), Green Tea Margarita and Espresso Martini…all absolutely unique and delicious
While seated with our cocktails and amidst interesting conversations, we nibbled on our Mushroom, chicken and sun dried tomato poppers.
We trudged along with a few drinks down to our fun 3rd and last pit stop – 1Above, a fun rooftop venue with a live crooner.
Patron XO Café shots were in order, our last alcoholic beverage for the night was brought to us amidst much fanfare with dry ice smoke and sparkle candles.
Mitali handed us cute Morning Fresh hampers which we consumed as the last shot to out night, thus ensuring an early and bright morning!
#FBAIDrinks Crawl hurray! What a night!
Aspri Spirits was on board as our Beverage partner indulged us with Aperol, Skyy Vodka and Patron Xo Café at our 3 bars in Kamala Mills- Verbena, Theory and 1Above.
Our freshness Partner – Morning Fresh ensured that whatever we drank, we were fresh and ready to go the next morning.
Aspri Spirits are the largest importer in India. They came into existence in 2004. They are currently present in 24 states and 51 cities in India.
Aperol is the perfect aperitif. Bright orange in color, it has a unique taste, thanks to the secret recipe, which has never been changed, with infusions of selected ingredients including bitter and sweet oranges and many other herbs (including rhubarb) and roots in perfect proportions.
SKYY is one of the first vodkas made from American grains and water, and uses an innovative proprietary quadruple distillation and triple filtration process. It delivers a dry, medium body with nice creamy mouth feel, and anise & coriander notes with a faint peppery finish.
Patron XO Café is a dark, delicious blend of Patrón Silver Tequila and the essence of fine coffee. It is dry also not sweet like most low-proof coffee liqueurs. Excellent for sipping, in cocktails, dessert ingredient or just as Patron xo café shot
Morning Fresh is the India’s 1st natural liver detox drink. When Morning Fresh is taken as the last shot of the night, the natural proteins, vitamins and antioxidants in the formulation help re-activate ADH in the liver, resulting in the rapid breakdown of alcohol into its non-toxic metabolites or in other works, helps detoxification of the liver. The key ingredients are also rich in amino-acids and antioxidants properties that result in repairing liver damage and rejuvenation.
